Politicians make gaffs on both sides almost every day. Was there malicious intent when the secretary said "cotton pickin"? I don't know that, and you don't either. It was a mistake either way. Was it okay for Clinton to say "they all look alike" because she's a liberal democrat? Was it okay for Joe Biden to say "you have to have an Indian accent to go in a 7-11" because he's a liberal democrat? The double standard continues.

No, all of that is standard PC crap!

I chopped cotton under the West Texas sun for a few dollars a day before I was a teenager. Good ole days? No, right now is the good ole days. Very Happy

I picked cotton from the time I was about age 8 until about age 10. I never considered it to be a racist term even though many of the other pickers were of different races from myself. The thought never crossed my mind.

And the investigations continue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
